The radio silence over here has been down to a pretty busy old week! Harry and I took a whistlestop trip up to Manchester, seeing friends, eating too much and generally letting ourselves enjoy the buzz of the city. It is always funny going back to a place you know very well- it always feels like you never left! I actually took barely any photos but sometimes that’s the sign of a really good trip, no? There are a thousand places to go and things to do in Manchester, but if you want a start point, here are some of my recommendations

Places to Eat :
Luck Lust Liquor & Burn – stupidly good burritos.
Almost Famous – Dirty burgers and incredible milkshakes. We’re talking syrups, cream, sprinkles and marshmallows here.
This n That – The cheapest and tastiest Indian ever. In a backstreet, lookng like a basic caff but so worth it.
Harvey Nichols – for beautiful views and really tasty deli platters. At a very reasonable price considering
Places to Drink:
North Tea Power – for the best cup of coffee in Manchester. Ask them to recommend you their favourite and go with it
Teacup – Mr Scruff’s cafe, with pretty epic cakes and fancy teas. The rosebud cream tea gets my vote.
Home Sweet Home – Again, tea and cake. Did I mention the cake? Yup.
Places to Visit:
Castlefield locks – a lovely spot to wander around and enjoy daydreaming about living in a narrowboat. You can stop off at the Museum of Science and Industry whilst you’re there too.
Manchester Art Gallery – right in the city center and always with some fun exhibitions going on. Its free too!
Northern Quarter – Wander around and explore the independent shops and cafes. Get lost in Affleck’s palace, stock up on fabrics at Abakhans and browse through music at Piccadilly Records
